11 Great Theology Books I Read In 2011

December 30, 2011 — 2 Comments

Much like last year’s list, this list is purely subjective.

But if you think I’ve got a good eye for books, then you could consider these to be some pretty stellar options for your 2012 reading list. Out of yesterday’s 115+ books I read this year, here are the 11 theology books that I think I enjoyed/was impacted by the most (in no particular order):










Union With Christ: Reframing Theology and Ministry for the Church










Redemption: Freed by Jesus From the Idols We Worship and the Wounds We Carry










Union With Christ: In Scripture, History, and Theology










Lit! (part 2part 3)










The Drama of Doctrine










Doing Philosophy as a Christian










The Doctrine of the Word of God










After You Believe: Why Christian Character Matters










Historical Theology










The Greener Grass Conspiracy










The Cross From a Distance

Like I said, no particular order, but some really great books on here. Several of these were books I just read in the last month or so and am still processing, so you might see some thoughts on these in upcoming posts.

Tomorrow, I’ll have a list of 11 books from the non-theological category, although if we’re being honest, it’s hard to write a book that doesn’t have some kind of theology to it. Hopefully, you understand what I’m doing here. I could have have said, “here’s the best 11 books I read you could find in a Christian bookstore” and then tomorrow’s post could be “here’s the best 11 books I read you won’t find in a Christian bookstore.”

But that’s kinda wordy isn’t it? Exactly. So, we’ll leave it how it is.

  1. I noticed that Christianity Today said that the best book of the year in Theology/Ethics was Michael Horton’s The Christian Faith. They must not have read your reviews of the book!

    • Yeah I saw that too. It was somewhat disappointing, but not terribly surprising. There’s enough hype about the book to overcome its sloppy writing and presentation.
